In our grand parents days, it used to rain cats and dogs, in our days, it rains tablets. The latest one to make a splash is the new In Media tablet called “The Tablet”, catchy?
The new In Media Tablet feels more like a overweight netbook then true Windows 7 Tablet, this unit does not really look optimized to this operating system in a touch environment. This device has a Intel Atom 1.66 GHZ CPU processor with a 10.1 inch screen. For memory it has a 160 GB Hard Drive and you can further increase it via an SD card for more memory. It has a USB and an HDMI port, so you can use it to watch HD videos on another device. It has a front facing camera so you can chat via webcam or do video calls.
You can interact with the tablet with the standard pinch zoom functions found in most tablets. You can use popular applications like Microsoft Office, and internet browsing. You can also read ebooks as well, but no word yet on what application it uses, if one is bundled with it. Otherwise you will have to use PC variants, such as Kindle for PC or the Kobo Desktop Software. The most heavily toted feature on this new tablet is Adobes Flash.
“The Tablet” will debut in the first quarter of 2011 for around $399.
